I wrote you long love letters, Mama, I sent 'em on day by day
Need you now even more than I did before
As I'm lookin', here's your Daddy comin' with a big ol' shotgun too
Lovin' situation look mighty poor

So if you're really wonderin' what I'm doin' in your backyard
I told you baby, I'd beat it home so soon
But if you're really worryin' 'bout what I'm doin' in your backyard
Come on out later I'll show you by the light of the moon

I had some dreams and fortune really, Mama, I got carried away
And lookin' back even more than I did before
As I'm leapin', creepin', hidin', sleepin' here's your Daddy with a shotgun too
Lovin' situation ain't nothin' but poor

So if you're really worried 'bout what I'm doin' in your backyard
I told you, baby, I's beatin' it home so soon
Well if you're really worryin' 'bout what I'm doin' in your backyard
Come on out later I'll show you by the light of the moon

Baby, thinkin' 'bout reelin' back
Wonderin' why I'm standin' here cryin', honey, lookin' in your backyard
Don't ya worry 'bout nothin', ya got nothin' on your mind but me
But as I'm layin' on my back about
Thinkin' 'bout summertime gettin' back all the way
Everything I see, honey, reminding me

Come on get your lovin' man
Come on get him while he's hot, get him on the run
Babe, I here your lookin' but really too blind to see
Oh, hey, what ya gonna think
About wham-bam, thank you ma'am
Where you goin' on the wildwood trail
Everything I see, honey, reminding me

Baby, might be thinkin' 'bout, really livin' back
Layin' back, standin' in your backyard
Told you, baby, I's beatin' it home so soon
If you're really wonderin' what I'm doin' in your backyard
Come on out later, babe, I'll show you by the light of the moon
